Venetian Causeway Set to Reopen Today

After months of repair the bridge will open this morning around noon

Venetian Islands residents, it's time to whip out the pots and pans.

After nearly a year of construction the Venetian Causeway will reopen today at noon, according to the Miami Herald. The $12.4-million project that began last June has forced residents to exclusively use the east entrance on Miami Beach for access.

There will be a ceremony at 11:00 a.m. with Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez, County Commission Chairman Jean Monestime and county commissioners Sally Heyman and Audrey Edmonson on hand to cut the ribbon and open up traffic to and from the mainland.

However, the rest of the causeway isn't in great condition either and a study is being conducted with a completion date in 2017 to formulate a plan for repair.
